Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Not all companies are created equal. Our exceptional style of service is all part of your experience, our goal; to put a smile on your face either from fear or delight! Our 109m high Canyon Swing with a 60m freefall, and 182m high Canyon Fox with a 5m drop are just the ticket to get your heart pumping. Whichever way you jump, launch or get released, there’s a fun or scary style for you. Gravity is a toy. Come out and play.

i honestly thought id wimp out or loose the plot and have to be thrown off but no, i was shaking in my boots alright but the guys made it funny and scary yet re assuring a strange sounding combo but it worked perfectly. The free fall there was a moment of my life flashing before my eyes the perfect adrenalin rush and left me buzzing for days after i still get a tingly tummy when i talk about the swing now! WOW thank you canyon swing team i'll be back!

You can't visit Queenstown without throwing yourself off a cliff! The cool staff are focused on fun and tormenting their customers but have a 'human' side when required. The journey to the site is covered is silence as participants battle their nerves but after one jump, the majority opt for another. Did hear some of the jump styles are tough on the back. Whichever style you select, the freefall is unreal. A great experience for young and old and something to impress anyone who will listen.

We had a great experience in New Zealand. I was ready to go bungee jumping right after lunch (at BonJour in Arrowtown, which was also awesome), when we had the good fortune of running into Chris, director at Canyon Swing. He told us all about it and took the time to set us up for that afternoon.

From the moment we were picked up we had a blast. The crew is professional and great fun. The experience of jumping itself is almost indescribable. Fear quickly gives way to exhilaration, along with a beautiful view.

All in all this was a great experience, which everyone who is in the area should try!

Just to see other people swinging at such great height was nerve wrecking. You certainly need a little bit of courage and guts to attempt this activity. Most people who did this were quite happy afterwards.

The guys will make you scared even if you aren't when you get there! Great experience, great staff! Tip: Do this with a Shotover jet experience to save some cash, they are both in the same vicinity and usually have combo packages.
